Hey y'all,

I'm Erica and I am a sleep tech here in Detroit, Michigan.

I have a question....

Have anyone ever kept a sleep log before or after seeing their doctor?
Have you documented your partner's sleeping habits?

If so, was it helpful?

I created a 7-day sleep journal to assist patients with documenting their sleep for 7days in hopes of self- correcting, or if they can't self-correct, they can share their sleep journal with their doctor. I also have other features in the journal like a sleep goal tracker and a financial tracker, and nightly devotions for the 7days.

My goal is to help our communities bring sleep to the forefront of their minds because bad sleep is the underlying issue to bigger issues like heart disease, diabetes, and strokes! If we can get a handle on our sleep, it's a good chance that we can reverse other diseases.

Is a sleep journal helpful? Chime in with your thoughts!

PAP Mask: F&P Vitera & Simplus, ResMed F20 N/P30i & old Amara View
PAP Machine: NIV ResMed Astral 150 soon
Humidifier: To be included with Astral & heated single limb leak circuit
Pressure Setting: Will run iVAPS, ResMed's variant on AVAPS

My notes were not organized in any set pattern. I had some notes used to explain why CPAP and BPAP were ineffective and incorrect therapy machines for a person with very high Central Apnea. I was helping to build my personal case of why ASV was the right answer. So I noted down symptoms and complaints in a somewhat less than completely random fashion and made sure the pulmonary doc heard them as many times as was required for him to take action. Notes of some sort as you're mentioning I think will be more effective than was mine.

Kudos for the work you are taking on. And best wishes it'll be successful.

A lot of us use OSCAR and have a record of their therapy on the computer. Most people on this forum are very in tune with their progress. OSCAR has a section where you can enter comments daily.
